Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

Nintendo DS Lite will not turn on.

My son dropped his DS on the wood floor and now it will not turn on. I has a rattle when you shake it. I did not purchase (wish I had) the extra warrenty. The DS was purchased in September at Target. Where should I take it to get it looked at.

Call the Target support for phones of the service workshops near you or try contacting the Nintendo support site.

The problem seems like the electronics inside the device got affected by the drop and you may have loosen wires or battery contacts, broken switches, etc. From simple things to more difficult ones.

So you may get a quote for the repair that can reach more than half the price of the unit. That is the dilema on repair returns to oficial service workshops.

DS wont work


More then likely when the DS hit the floor the board ended up having hairline cracks in them. Hairline cracks in the main board of the DS will cause the DS to not turn on fully. Get the DS replaced.

DS lite was dropped and now it won't work.


They usually don't work properly after they've been dropped. Nintendo carries a 1 year warranty, they will replace it for free (but not if you've used cheat codes (Action Reply), etc). I wouldn't mention that you've dropped it when calling them.

Dropped Nintendo DS Lite on wooden floor - NOW IT WON'T TURN ON


remove the battery for a few mins and put it back in and try again?
Its a long shot but theres very little you can do with this, the insides of the DS lite are REALLY small and the only replaceable parts are the screen, buttons, etc. and you cant really fix damage to the board or chips inside which presumably is whats happened here if you get zero response.
Sorry.. :(

Nintendo DS lite - dropped


Might be worth taking it into a phone repair shop to see if they can replace the LCD screen. (yes, a phone repair shop - a lot of them do portable console screens too!) If they can't do it, it's probably unfixable realistically.

Nintendo ds lite wont turn back on


Not sure if this will help you, but my son dropped his on to a concrete pavement and it wen black, the charge lite would only come up for one second then go out when I plugged it in to charge. Just for fun, I had a spare battery and changed it. In this instance, the system started working again.

Not sure how this can happen, but dropping it on the floor seems to have killed the battery that was in it. A simple replacement battery did the trick for me.

Good Luck in fixing yours

Dropped nintendo ds


Best thing is to open it up and see what it is that's making the sound inside. Check no connectors have come partially off or out of their sockets, also.
